I haven’t come across a section of the Celestial Constitution where it is mandatory to seek permission from one’s shepherd before approaching a lady.
What Papa gave to us is that we seek spiritual consultation from a prophet concerning the compatibility of both the sister and the brother. Though most times, shepherds are prophets and therefore, whatever counsel they have to give must be from the inspiration of the Holy spirit and not from their mere assumptions about the sister.
In the case of shepherds that the Holy Spirit of God has left since he has ventured into adultery, covetousness and all sort of immoralities, the Shepherd himself might have had interest in the sister in question or possibly seeing the sister already secretly and won’t even bother to seek consultation from the Holy Spirit because he knows too-well that the spirit has left him.
The shepherd would, of course, speak from canal mind, he would look for all possible means to discourage the brother from having anything to do with the lady and when the brother refuses to listen , enmity will begin in the house of God between the shepherd and the brother.
When a brother is caught in this web; what should he do? Leave a logical reasons pleases
May God of Oshoffa lead us right. Amen
